One-month-old eyesight

After watching Katya's response to moving cards with varying-precision black-and-white lines, the Retina Foundation determined that she is indeed seeing, but at the level of a one-month-old rather than a four-month-old.

They also put her in a pair of special goggles to measure her nystagmus, then they stuck electrodes on her head and flashed more black and white lines on a computer screen while swinging jingling metal bracelets on a string in front of the computer screen to keep her attention.

Her retinas appear to be normal, so we'll see what the MRI shows tomorrow. In the meantime, she's smiling and responding more and more every day!
